MANATEE COUNTY – Three are sent to the hospital one as a trauma alert Wednesday after two vehicles collide.

A four runner traveled south bound and a landscaping truck was heading in the northbound direction.

The four runner went to pass a vehicle in front of it hitting the truck head on.

The truck went through the shrubs and rested there while the four runner ended up on the grass adjacent to the shoulder of the northbound side.

Three people were in the truck and a male subject from Bradenton drove the four runner.

An ambulance transported three victims to Sarasota Memorial Hospital.

Two patients from the landscaping truck had minor injuries while the driver of the four runner was a trauma alert.

The driver of the four runner will be charged with improper passing.
